How many units is J1050? Is it "1" or "150"?
SuperCoder Posted 15 day(s) ago

HCPCS code J1050 states: Injection, medroxyprogesterone acetate, 1 mg (meaning: 1 mg= 1 unit).

The units of service for J1050 should reflect the number of milligrams injected.


Note: As per FDA, the recommended dose is 150 mg of Depo-Provera every 3 months (13 weeks) administered by deep, IM injection in the gluteal or deltoid muscle.

So I'm billing for 150u.

Yes, you may report 150 units of J1050 basis your documentation.
